Vienna/Tysons Corner Real Estate
Originally settled by American Colonists in 1754, this residential community on the outskirts of Tysons Corner features a small-town atmosphere, its own central business district and easy access to Washington, D.C. via the Vienna Metro. Home to one of the earliest battles of the Civil War, this community carries with it a rich history that includes Vienna’s first Baptist Church built in 1867 (made with Union Army barracks lumber) and the Patrick Henry Library. In 2005, Money Magazine named Vienna one of the best places to live in the U.S.
Nestled between McLean and Vienna you’ll find Tysons Corner, Virginia – the “downtown” of Fairfax County. This semi-urban area near the Dulles Toll Road and Capital Beltway is home to the largest shopping mall in the Baltimore-Washington area and is the 12th largest employment center in the United States. Originally known as Peach Grove, and later named Tysons Crossroads at the end of the Civil War, this area remained quite rural until 1963 when it became largely commercialized by the development of the Tysons Corner Mall, which was the nation’s largest enclosed mall when it opened in 1968. Today, Tysons Corner is home to about 20,000 residents and features high-rise apartments, condos and townhouses all conveniently located among shopping malls and office centers.
